Well after extended testing I found out that only the fans connected on SysFan1 can be controlled in the BIOS. And so I connected 3 fans together on that header and 5 fans on the CPU header now everything is nice and quiet on idle and speeds up when temperature increases. All the other headers are useless almost. You could connect a pump or low RPM fans.

The manual mentions what the different system fan headers can do.

There's tables that describe what's put onto the four pins of the headers. In one of the rows of those tables, you will see "Speed Control" mentioned. If that "Speed Control" is in the row for pin number two, then that system fan header changes voltage. If it's in the row for pin number four, then that system fan header is a PWM fan header. There might also be a system fan header that can't do any voltage or PWM control. That one will just run any fan at 100%.

My board is Z77X UD3H.
I experienced a lot of coil whine today while running a game installer. I disconnected fans from my fan controller to isolate it but it didn't appear to be a fan. Every fan in the PC is on the controller including VGA fans. Wasn't coming from VGA either.
I checked HW monitor and it got up to 70*C on the CPU and 1.248 volt, not super hot compared to prime 95 but still full load.

Moved my hands up to the VRM area and it was very hot. I could put my hand on the heat sink and not burn but it was the hottest I've ever felt it. Once this installer finished the coil whine stopped, the heat went away, and I shut down. The sound came from this area. I moved one of my fans to blow a bit more on the VRM area and things are working fine once more.

I've never had coil whine from this board before. Has anyone else had this? I was going to move my rig to a new case at some point and I have a spare power supply to try.

Are you sure that the coil whine is not from the gpu ? Try the gpu in another pc if you can.

Edit: Also try the spare psu. Its a first time i hear about coil whine that comes from a mobo.

It was the motherboard VRM and this game installer some how cooked my VRM. Just in the installer it was running 75*C. The Blue VRM heatsink was blazing hot. I just played some Grid 2 and it barely cracked 50*C while playing. I've never had the VRM get this hot before even running Intel Burn Test or Prime 95. In fact the game installer got the CPU hotter than prime 95 ever gets this machine with the settings I was using. Its the strangest thing but now my USB ports don't work properly. Definitely Not the VGA. Firstly: Coil whine in 2D Windows Desktop? Second: Clearly coming from top left CPU socket area. Not the VGA. Don't install Galactic Junk League I guess. Fried my PC. Galactic Junked PC. I have never had coil whine from this particular PC before.

Now my USB ports keep turning on and off, the two top left ports by the PS/2 port.

I reset to optimized defaults and I am going to try running some stability tests and see if the USB turns on and off at the same time, whether the system hangs, or how hot the VRM heatsink gets etc. Right now running just 50*C flat out on P95 Blend and the heatsink feels cool to the touch.

I wonder if there's a power virus in this installer.

Ok run the tests and report back.

Damn power virus in motherboard ? I heard before about mine viruses using GPU power but this....

sixor,

sorry for the late response but I was having problems with this behavior last year and I disable wake on lan, and any associated "wake on..." crap and it has since fixed it. I'm not saying it's not your case fan though. Guess you need to trouble shoot that separately.

Hi guys,
I have a problem with my Z77-D3h. When I insert new RX 480 video card, no video signal from both Intel and RX480 outputs, I can't even enter BIOS. No beeps, just running fans. BIOS is F18g. When this card is out, Intel output works properly. Did anybody have this issue and solved it? Thanks.
post #6619 of 6656
With the default settings in the BIOS, the board will shut down the Intel graphics if it detects a graphics card. Perhaps the board detects the graphics card and disables the Intel GPU, and then at the same time the graphics card does not want to boot up for some reason so everything freezes.

I'd double check if you did everything right about installing the graphics card, like maybe you forgot connecting the 6-pin power cable to the card? Is it pushed fully into the slot?

Can you try the card in another PC to see if the card is fine?

Something might be wrong with the normal graphics card slot of the board. You could try the second one to see if maybe just the first one has an issue.

There's a setting somewhere in the BIOS where you can limit the graphics card slot to PCI-E 2.0 speeds instead of default 3.0 speeds that the board and CPU can do. I think it was called something like "PEG Gen2" and "PEG Gen3". You could try to see if that makes a difference.
post #6620 of 6656
Thanks for the answer. This card has only one 8-pin power connector (which is strange, but I didn't find second 6-pin connector as on older R9 cards) and it is connected. I tried this card on another Z77-D3H board and the picture is the same. Slot is fine because R9 380X card is working in it. There is no setting in the BIOS regarding PCIE generation. Looks to me like incompatibility between board and RX480 but it's hard to believe because the mobo is just 2 years old. Any other thoughts?
